Seeing aspects of yourself reflected back in the pages of a book can be a startling experience. Being ‘seen’ in the class text, or in a book selected from the school library, can act as a form of validation; moreover, it can engage, excite, energise and invigorate the reader. When a child makes a connection with a book, much of a teacher’s work is done! Without need for prompt or provocation, a child will often seek a way to express that connection, be it through an enthused contribution to a discussion (‘Oh yes, that’s like me/my family/ my grandpa’), or perhaps through a written response. Either way, by helping all children to see that the books we choose relate to them, teachers can greatly improve engagement and, in turn, progress.

The conference will feature input from experienced teachers, academics and political campaigners and will ensure that delegates leave with an understanding of how they can work to improve diverse representation through the English curriculum in their schools and classrooms, and why this work matters so much.

The conference will end with a contribution from The Honourable Stuart Lawrence, younger brother of Stephen Lawrence. A motivational public speaker with over 20 years’ experience as a youth engagement specialist.
